Every blog post you create has has it’s own single post page. The single post page displays the entire blog post, featured images, author details, comments, etc. In this article, we’ll be outline all the relevant sections in a single post page and how you can configure the post page using the global Theme Options, Fusion Options and use the Fusion builder to create dynamic post content. If you’d like to display an archive of your blog posts on one page, you can use the Blog Element or the Recent Posts Element. Here is a demo of our Blog Single Post page.
Uploading Featured Images
- Featured Image Box – For each post you create you can upload one or more featured images (the default is 5). Avada provides Featured Image Boxes on the right side of the post editing page and this is where you upload your Featured Image/s. You can only upload one image per ‘Set Featured Image’ option.
- Featured Image Slideshow – If you upload more than one featured image Avada generates a featured image slideshow on the single post page. View a an example here.
- Number Of Featured Images Per Post – By default you can upload 5 featured images per post, however that can be changed globally by going to Theme Options > Slideshows > Post Slideshow Images and increasing/decreasing the number (min. 1 – max. 30).
Featured Image Dimensions
The ‘Featured Image Dimensions’ option (Image width and height) is located in the Fusion Page Options > Posts section of the posts page. Values are set in pixels or percentage, ex: 100% or 100px. Or Use “auto” for automatic resizing if you added either width or height.

Post Meta Information
- Categories – Categories are pre-defined taxonomies used to sort content into different sections. This makes it easier for the user to filter relevant Blog posts they’d like to view. On the right side of the page you’ll see the ‘Categories’ box. Here you can assign multiple unique categories to the post. For example, WordPress, Photoshop, and the like. Categories can be clicked by the user to view all posts assigned to that particular category. You can also access and edit Categories from the Posts > Categories tab on your WP admin sidebar.
- Tags – This is meta information you create to help further define your Blog posts. Underneath the ‘Categories’ box you’ll see the ‘Tags’ box. Here you can add tags to the post. For example, Photography, or Design. Each tag is a meta link that your viewer can click to view posts with the same tags. You can also access and edit Tags from the Posts > Tags tab on your WordPress admin sidebar.
- Blog Post Formats – This helps display the type of post you’ve created. For example, if its an Image post, Video post or Slideshows post. Blog Post Format information will only display when using the ‘Large’ or ‘Medium Alternate’ blog layouts on the Blog element. Those layouts allow for a post icon format to display with the post. For more information, please see the Blog Post Format article.
